If you’re happy making voice calls on a trusty old Nokia dumbphone, but want to add unlimited e-mail and text to your on-the-go arsenal without paying exhorbitant carrier fees, the Peek Pronto might be just what you’re looking for.

The Pronto supports push e-mail, Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, and all POP/IMAP accounts. You can use up to five e-mail accounts on the one Pronto, and view image, PDF and Microsoft Word attachments.

The Pronto is 50% faster than the original Peek, and Peek claim that you can get the device set up within 2 minutes – although we’re guessing it’ll take a little longer if you need to go dig out your POP/IMAP server details.

Peek promise that the rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides an average of two to three days of battery life, which is a welcome change from smartphones of late, the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream in particular needing a lunch time charge if you want any chance of making it through the day with a working phone.

The Peek Pronto is $79.95, with a monthly fee of $19.95 for unlimited e-mail and text. It’s available now from Amazon.
